Faultless hospitality and facilities right from check-in to departure. Good local restaurants and also 'Ralphs' the local grocery store who give you genuine discounts when you show them your room key. Certainly going back again as most do!

We have stayed here twice and will never stay anywhere else. The whole vibe is relax, relax, relax. No kids, no parties, just chill. Small, boutique hotel for adults with excellent hosts in a great location.

If you are looking for a hotel in Palm Springs don't look any further, the best one is Hotel California!

Larry, Lucy, Mike, Jay and the rest of the staff are the nicest and friendliest people I've had the pleasure of meeting. They are the perfect hosts and will go out of their way...

We are a low-key, romantic adult oasis. We do our best to provide that experience. We have an obligation to all of the guests staying with us and strive to meet and exceed those expectations.
